Constructing Green Buildings

The city’s Green Building Program has further assisted community partners to support and expand green building. Downtown Las Vegas has recently undergone a trend of new “green” developments that have incorporated solar and green building design and are within walking distance of the New City Hall location. Among these are seven new LEED buildings and developments that are completed or under construction, including:

  • Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Headquarters
  • Symphony Park LEED Neighborhood Development
  • LEED Gold Molasky Corporate Center
  • Smith Center for the Performing Arts
  • LEED Gold Bonneville Transit Center
  • 302 Carson Building
  • LEED Silver New City Hall
  • LEED Silver Organized Crime Museum

As a result, the United States Green Building Council ranked Nevada (10.92 ft2 per person) as the number two state for LEED-certified commercial and institutional green buildings per capita in 2010, behind only Washington D.C. (25.15 sf per person).
